We are looking to recruit a Support Worker who can offer a high standard of person-centred support and is able to work in a flexible manner, as part of a team.

As a Support Worker your responsibilities will include:
• To encourage positive self-image and maintain health and wellbeing.

• Provide access to the community, enabling the people we support to participate in sports clubs, social events and creative endeavours. 


Our friendly staff team help the people we support to be as independent as possible and offer personal care as well as support with accessing the community.
